Chris Brown is gearing up to release his sixth studio album "X," which may give fans some insight into his love life.
Brown, the 23-year-old singer-songwriter, said his album title may have something to do with an ex-girlfriend.
"X is also a metaphor, as in 'ex-girlfriend', it implies you're progressing and moving on in life, not holding on to the past and your old ways," Brown told Rolling Stone magazine recently.
The world got a glimpse of Brown's love triangle with now-girlfriend Rihanna and his ex-love interest Karrueche Tran. After publicly breaking things off with Tran, Brown said he is speaking about his feelings on his upcoming studio album slated for a summer release.
"Whether it's personal or life experiences- my girl, my exes, love in general or just reality – I'm putting all that into this album," Brown told Rolling Stone. " That's the basis of what X is and who Chris Brown is."
The singer made it clear that his personal experiences would be revealed on "X."
"This album has a lot of substance from the subject matter and the situations to how it deals with love," Brown told Rolling Stone. "It's really derived from personal experiences."
Brown told MTV that he has grown as a singer and person which fans will get a glimpse of on his new album.
"It's also about being a reject in a sense," Brown told MTV. "In me being myself, being able to grow up, me not always hanging around the right crowd or doing the right thing all the time- it's me saying, 'I'm over it. I'm past the (expletive) now.'"
Instead of expressing himself on social media, Brown spoke about the importance of letting his feelings be released through music.
"I think it's smarter as an entertainer and as a leader. I have to think logically. When I'm too attainable, it makes me too down," Brown told MTV recently. "Now I express it through my music and through my paintings as well. What I want to talk about comes out, and the beat fills in the rest."
